M3-1(85)-7 
For Wire Transmission 10:00a.m. E.D.T. Friday, August 30 





(All Figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars) 



SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in July 
decreased $2.6 billion or 1.3 percent to $195.6 billion, 
following a 1.7 percent increase in June and a 2.1 percent 
increase in May. A decline in defense orders accounted for 
about half of the decrease; excluding defense, 
manufacturers' new orders were down 0.6 percent. 

Shipments of manufactured goods for July were $193.8 
billion, showing virtually no change since March, when they 
reached $194.3 billion. Both the durable and nondurable 
goods sectors reflected the flatness. Durable goods 
shipments were $102.5 billion in July with an average of 
$102.4 billion per month since March; nondurable goods were 
$91.3 billion in July, with an average of $91.5 billion per 
month since March. 

Manufacturers' unfilled orders in July increased $1.9 
billion or 0.5 percent to $361.4 billion, following a 1.2 
percent increase in June. Defense capital goods contributed 
significantly to both months' increases; excluding defense, 
unfilled orders in June Increased 0.2 percent and in July 
decreased 0.4 percent. 

Manufacturers' inventories in July decreased $0.5 
billion or 0.2 percent to $285.2 billion, nearly offsetting 
the 0.3 percent increase in the prior month. Inventories 
have shown virtually no change since last October when tl.ey 
reached $285.6 billion, following a year of steady 
increases. The inventory to shipments ratio for July was 
1.47, the same as June. 

NEW ORDERS. New orders for durable goods in July were down 
$2.4 billion or 2.3 percent to $104.4 billion. About two- 
thirds of that decline came in transportation equipment, 
which declined $1.6 billion or 5.6 percent to $26.7 billion; 
aircraft and parts decreased $1.2 billion following a $2.6 
billion increase in June. Both electrical and nonelectrical 
machinery were down, offsetting most of the increases shown 
last month; nonelectrical was down $0.2 billion or 1.2 
percent in July to $17.6 billion, following a 2.8 percent 
increase in June; electrical was down in July $1.2 billion 
or 7.7 percent to $15.0 billion, following an 8.4 percent 
Increase in June. Primary metals were also down in July, 
declining $0.2 billion or 1.5 percent to $10.6 billion. New 
orders for the nondurable goods sector showed a slight 
decline, down SO. 2 billion or 0.2 percent to $91.3 billion. 



SHIPMENTS. The small decline in durable goods shipments of 
0.2 percent resulted from offsetting increases and decreases 
in the major industries. The largest increase was in 
transportation equipment, up $0.7 billion or 2.7 percent to 
$25.0 billion, with most of the increase in the automotive 
Industry. Fabricated metals products were up $0.5 billion 
or 4.0 percent to $14.4 billion. The largest declines were 
in the machinery categories; electrical was down $0.7 
billion or 4.4 percent to $15.0 billion, and nonelectrical 
was down $0.7 billion or 3.6 percent to $17.3 billion. 

Within nondurable goods, increases in food products, 
chemicals and textiles offset declines in tobacco products, 
apparel and petroleum. The food products industry shipments 
were $24.7 billion in July and account for about one-fourth 
of all nondurable goods shipments; foods have shown little 
change since the end of 1983, averaging $24.7 billion per 
month. 

UNFILLED ORDERS. The unfilled orders Increase of $1.9 
billion was caused mostly by an increase in defense aircraft 
and parts. Small Increases in nonelectrical machinery, 
shipbuilding, steel, and Instruments were offset by small 
decreases In the rest of the industries. 

Within the capital goods industries, unfilled orders 
for nondefense declined $0.3 billion or 0.2 percent to 
$132.3 billion; a post recession high was reached in 
September 1984 at $137.1 billion, with declines occurring 8 
of the 10 months since then. Defense unfilled orders 
continued to increase; the July Increase was $2.8 billion or 
2.0 percent to $140.8 billion. Defense backlog now accounts 
for 40 percent of the total backlog held by durable goods 
manufacturers. 

INVENTORIES. Inventories in the durable goods industries 
showed virtually no change for the month with most of the 
Industries showing increases of 1.0 percent or less. 
Inventories of defense capital goods manufacturers increased 
$0.6 billion or 2.2 percent to $25.3 billion; excluding 
defense, durable goods inventories declined 0.4 percent. 

Nondurable goods Inventories declined $0.7 billion or 
0.7 percent to $92.8 billion, the largest declines being In 
petroleum products, chemicals and paper products.

goods for August Is scheduled for release on September 24,
